Merzouga - places to stay there or thereaboutsDear All
have spent much time trawling through this forum, trip advisor as well as guidebooks - LP, Footprint, Time out (many of these slightly out of date now). If anyone has stayed somewhere in Merzouga or on the dunes quite recently am most interested to hear from you as some trip advisor/thorn tree reviews are not that recent. I'll be going in May so being cold will not be an issue, travelling with a friend. We'll be there a few days so it would be nice to have a swimming pool.
The main criteria for us are: a) clean and safe b) edible food - not expecting fine dining c) a nice terrace with good views of the dunes d) swimming pool. If you can answer YES to all these four points then please recommend a place.
I have a shortlist of places but am keen to hear thorn tree posters opinions first.
thanks very much
ps: it's been a while since I've posted anything on here mainly due to lack of funds for travelling!!

1I was in Merzouga last May and I stayed at Riad Mamouche at Hassi Labaid which is a small village close to the dunes. Comfortable accommodation, a great pool, yummy traditional food and an amazing view to the dunes and across the village.

Racheal - thanks will look into that place
Tim - alcohol is not a priority. I notice you are out in Morocco at the moment - anywhere near Merzouga - if so where are you staying ?
Khamlia - we can handle dust, we know we will be surrounded by a desert - it's more cockroaches and bed bugs we want to avoid :-)

6I´m out at Merzouga at the moment, I had a two night camel safari organised through Soleil Bleu hotel, 2km north of Merzouga centre. They were great, I had an excellent time. Small group, good guide, good food, good price. I haven´t stayed at the hotel itself but it seems like a nice spot too and the people here and friendly!
